Next Wave X

In collaboration with Next Wave, we invited Australia’s emerging and early career artists to be a part of our co-commission project, Next  Wave X.

Next Wave will bring together the new generation of Australian artists with some of Australia’s most exciting industry partners, including Vitalstatistix, to realise their ambitious project for Next Wave Festival 2020.

These co-commissions will include funding and expert mentorship, with a number also including multiple presentation opportunities, facilitating successful candidates with the resources and unparalleled artist support to present on a national stage, without creative compromise.

Together we provide opportunities to work in iconic and unusual spaces, and reach artist communities across the country, ensuring Next Wave Festival 2020 will hold its place as the most dynamic national showcase of emerging artists and creative risk-taking.

Applications are now closed.
